Lewisville is located in Denton County, Texas. The 2010 United States Census stated its population as 95,290, and is one of the fastest growing city populations in the United States. It occupies 36.4 square miles of land and 6.07 square miles of Lewisville Lake. Originally called Holford’s Prairie, the origins of Lewisville date back to the early 1840s. The arrival of the town’s first railroad in 1881 engendered its initial growth, and the expansion of the area’s transportation infrastructure spurred further development in the early part of the 20th century. The city incorporated in 1925. When construction of Lewisville Lake was completed in the 1950s, the city began to expand rapidly.
Between 2006 and 2010, the median income for a Lewisville household was $54,771, and per capita income was $24,703. About 8.7% of the population was below the poverty line (against 16.8% for Texas as a whole).
